BONUS UPDATE: My cohort in crafting crime brought me her "altered" version of this card. We both weren't thrilled with the subject matter. You can see it below, it is the last picture. I like that she took the provided brown base and ran it through with a wood grain embossing folder. Then she used a generous amount of dark brown sponging on both the base and the pink.

Stamp A Stack Card #4 - Fish Card
Today I am going to post another Stamp A Stack card. This is a card that I liked. I like narrower frames, so first thing's first, I trimmed off some of the coral mat for a 1/8th edge.
But, that was not enough, it needed a little something more. I wanted to make bubbles. I looked at a variety of embellishments that could achieve the bubbles look. What I decided on is not a papercrafting embellishment at all. I also bling up apparel using vinyl (cut on my Cameo), rhinestones and rhinestuds. I have some nice silver and gold rhinestuds and they added just the right sparkle I was after. Part of the problem is that the eye already had a clear rhinestone, and I didn't want the bubbles to be the same.
I had to use fine tweezers and literally scoop up a tiny bit of Glossy Accents into the inside "cup". These are like an inverted sequin. I like how this came out. I do apologize for the really bad class card image. I need to make sure I take better pictures than this if I am going to be posting them. So bear with me as I change my ways to the blog way:) Now that I blog, EVERY picture is meaningful and potential to be posted so must be done well I say!
